I just installed Linux Mint 13 alongside Windows 7 Starter on a new HP Mini 200-4200sb. The live dvd worked perfectly, the install worked perfectly, but when I clicked on "restart" it froze. I pushed the off-button a few seconds to shut it off manually and restarted. Grub appeared fine with Linux Mint and Windows in it, but when I start Linux it shows a blank (black) screen and freezes. Same thing with Linux recovery mode, well almost: it shows to lines of text, those disappear, and then freeze.
I can however boot from DVD and choose "boot from local disk" (I press enter during the countdown and then this option appears). So I'm writing this from Mint installed on the netbook, but I can't get to it without passing by the live DVD.
Can anyone help please?
Many thanks in advance...
(P.S. For those interested, in order to be able to install Mint alongside Windows, I had to start Gparted from the live DVD and delete the "HP Tools" partition because apparently one can only have 4 partitions max, and Mint did not propose the option to install alongside Windows, only to replace it. So after deleting this partition I started windows and resized the WIndows partition using the disk manager I found somewhere in the configuration panel. After that the live DVD, when choosing Install linux Mint, presented the option "Install alongside Windows").
